    No big deal but...the reason I replaced it was that the ends where it had been cut to fit originally were frayed and letting lots of air in meaning I had to watch it like a hawk and it burned through a load very fast. I used gorilla tape to keep the end from fraying when I cut it but I'm sure that will burn off during the first fire (tonight). Should I be wrapping it in some sort of high temp tape? If so, any recommendations?

    Just normal. Usually, I just schmear a lil gasket cement in that spot where the two ends join, and do my best to bury those ends in it, being careful not to get any on the stove mating surface of the gasket (don't want it to stick to the stove when closed).

    Thanks, burned last night and the thing works like a champ again. To my surprise the gorilla tape actually survived. We shall see how long that lasts :)
